Join us for our 6th year celebrating National Novel Writing Month in November!

We’ve got some AWESOME activities planned for this year, including:

  • Saturday morning writing sprints (every Saturday in November)
  • Come Write In night sessions (every Saturday in November)
  • A NaNoWriMo zine printed in-house
  • A flash fiction contest
  • Raffles and giveaways
  • … and more!

Our prizes include pins, canvas bags, t-shirts, and water bottle stickers, all of which will contain an exclusive graphic (below) designed by the West Hartford Public Library staff!
